Cruise and Ferry Review - Summer/Spring 2020

1 8 3 “Informal, yet elegant, I envision these upcycled pieces being placed poolside or being used as seating for a casual indoor/ outdoor restaurant setting. It’s inspiring to see a manufacturer respond to the environmental impact of ocean debris by recycling plastic into beautifully designed furniture.” Volume Creative collected shore and domestic plastic, chipped it, and experimented using an aggregate of sustainable material Jesmonite to create its ‘Spared’ artwork – a ship’s model plinth that is featured in the central public space onboard Virgin Voyages’ new Scarlet Lady. As well as sending a strong message about ocean plastics, the artwork exemplifies Volume Creative’s commitment to produce work that lasts a lifetime, whether it’s an interior, product or art.
